Amar Bhidé, professor of business at Columbia University, discussed a chapter from his book, The Venturesome Economy: How Innovation Sustains Prosperity in an Interconnected World, in which he investigates the nature of labor demand in high-tech venture firms to determine why these firms rely on more skilled immigrant employment than other sectors in the economy. He also touched on what factors may affect the likelihood of a venture-backed firm to off-shore or market globally.
Diana Furchtgott-Roth, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, and director of the Center for Employment Policy, moderated the discussion.
